Chess

Kingdoms lost
At bleak break of day
Count the cost

Foolish game
Each expendable
Just the same

We’re so small
Our hopes do not count
Not at all

Even kings
Cannot turn the tide
Not a thing

Gods will play
Make us start anew
Break of day

About helenvalentina

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.
